Ask and You Shall Receive

Needleprint Stash 032107

Thanks to Nicki‘s tip, I was able to purchase the Beatrix Potter Sampler from Em-Li’s. I also purchased Sarah Moon. Both charts are beautiful. I am so happy to have them! And speaking of stash, I am expecting my last three sheep blankets any day now. I’m hoping that any threads I need for April that I don’t already have will be easily picked up at my LNS, so that I can get a quick start on that one.

Baby Garden 032107

I’ve made some more progress on Baby Garden. I am completely finished with band 1, and am zipping along on band 2. Band 2 ends after the baby’s name is stitched over one. I’m working on the flower band right above that. I just love Nan’s bees and butterflies that she includes on her charts…they just really bring the garden to life.

Tonight I plan to stitch on my HAED Water ACEO. It will be fun to get back to it. I will get to start on row two tonight. What a treat! At some point I will have to stitch on this for longer stretches if I want to finish it this year. It’s cool to see it come to life though, and is such a change from the Just Nans.

Walk to Rivendell: Wood more dense, and lane went lower, running in a fold of hills, with hazel on the slopes alongside. Pippin quickly becomes sleepy. (Total miles walked: 44)

I am grateful for change.

  1. What a lovely update 🙂 Baby Garden is coming to life and you are right…the bees and butterflies really bring it to life 🙂 I’ve got BP, but I’ve been thinking about the BP companion and Sarah Moon is glorious too 🙂
    Glad you were able to get them!

  5. Congratulations! I scored the BP one on ebay about six months ago, and due to the seller misspelling its title, got it for a song – LOL! It’s gorgeous, isn’t it??!!

  13. Love your Baby Garden. Agree about the JN bees. Just had framed Medeiros’ Blueberry Sampler, and the bees made all the difference. Pam

  15. I’m glad that you were able to get the two charts! Baby Garden is going well, too. It’s funny how different designs require different amounts of attention, isn’t it?
